CD Projekt founders, Michał Kiciński and Marcin Iwiński along with CD Projekt RED studio head Adam Badowski have been awarded an Order of Polonia Restituta(Order of Rebirth of Poland) by Polish president, Bronisław Komorowski.
The award ceremony took place on 3rd of May, which is Poland's national holiday, held to remember Constitution of May 3. The orders were awarded in the class of Knight's Cross. Order of Polonia Restituta is the second highest civilian order in Poland, only to the rarely awarded Order of White Eagle.
The Order can be conferred for outstanding achievements in the fields of education, science, sport, culture, art, economics, national defense, social work, civil service, or for furthering good relations between countries.

The ceremony took place in the Royal Castle in Warsaw."The Castle, which have witnessed the creation of the Constitution of May 3, disappeared in the horror of World War II. Today it keeps pleasing us as a proof that we survived and that to this day - for all these Polish generations, for 222 years since the Constitution was passed - we are on the same way - a way of serving the motherland and realizing a dream of good, modern, open for others, brave in confrontation but also in befriending the world"
The awarded creators of CD Projekt wrote in a letter to the president: "20 years ago, when being young, crazy people full of brave plans we were starting our enterprise, and soon after that our work on "The Witcher" series, we wouldn't even think about being in such a place in such character. We just wanted to make a living out of our passion and today we believe that it's passion that brought us here"
Polish president received a collector's edition of the Witcher 2.

Doomed are those who take lunacy for prophecy, and carcasses for holy arses.

Yeah, that's a very unfortunate attitude. But whatever, people in the US should keep making great games regardless.
Congrats to CDPR! You all keep being awesome

I think Peter Molyneux was honored by the Queen some years ago.
This is really great news. It's really nice to see how proud people are of CD Projekt and The Witcher. They have every reason to be.
